are republicans asking paul ryan for advice on beating president obama? >>> and as the president surges in this second term, we have news tonight about the birther movement. and it might surprise you. >>> plus, 50 years since civil rights leader medgar evers was murdered. his legacy is living on through his wife. and i counted the civil rights movement. evers has a big moment at the inauguration. she joins me live tonight. you're watching "politics nation," the place for politics, msnbc. [ male announcer ] when these come together, and these come together, one thing you can depend on is that these will come together. delicious and wholesome. some combinations were just meant to be. tomato soup from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. let's say you pay your guy around 2% to manage your money. that's not much you think. except it's 2% every year. does that make a difference? search "cost of financial advisors" ouch. over time it really adds up. then go to e-trade and find out how much our advice costs. spoiler alert: it's low. really? yes, really. e-trade offers investment advice a
it by knocking back against the demagoguery i just heard with respect to paul ryan's budget. you know paul ryan had the courage to take on social security reform, medicaid reform and medicare reform. as my colleague just repeated, one of their talking points, that it decimated this group or the other, it balanced in 40 years. i want your viewers to let that soak in. paul ryan's budget balances in 40, four, zero, years. yet my colleagues on the other side of the aisle say that is draconian and mean-spirited. social security is easy to fix. medicare is easy to fix but not when you trot out stale talking points and you vouchers that will destroy medicare as we know it. if you want a fair conversation about it which everyone concedes privately on entitledment reform. when someone has the courage of paul ryan and get demagogued and show ads of pushing a senior citizen off a cliff makes you less likely to do it. tracy: for those of us at home listening to all this the word bipartisanship has become a dirty word down in d.c. i hope you find time to find it again and work through these things. congress
. paul ryan, where are you? we need more spending cuts, more entitlement reform and even some tax reform especially business tax cuts to spur economic growth. my two cents. here is an old friend, david walker, founder, president and ceo of the come back america initiative. he knows a lot about this. david, let me ask you this. is boehner wrong to insist that a dollar debt increase should be accompanied by a spending decrease? >> the fact is we need to pay our bills. and i do however think that we have a spending problem. the federal government has gone from being 2% of the economy, 100 years ago. to 24% today. headed to 37% by 2040 absent a change in course. the republicans ought to leverage the sequester and the c.r. not to shut down the government, but we need to reduce spending. we also have to keep in mind if you try to hold the debt ceiling hostage, social security is negative cash flow. therefore, that means you could face a situation where the social security checks don't go out on time. the last time we faced that, it was 1983. and that was the only reason we got reforms. that wo
in there most republicans and democrats wouldn't even put forward. the vice presidential candidate, paul ryan, was one of those guys on that committee and didn't vote for it. how do we get hard line republicans to say these are tough decisions, they're not going to be palatable, they're way further than most republicans would go in terms of debt spending cuts? >> ali, we have a tough problem. whatever solutions we come up with are going to be tough. but i would prefer tough solutions to a tough situation that perpetuates itself. we have to face the music. we're 100% leveraged. it's beginning to compound our debt. our deficits are growing. we won't be able to meet the dreams of the american people. we near a protected period of economic malaise. the only thing that will change that is a country that has confidence, business has confidence that taxes will be reasonable and predictable, regulation will be fair and equitable so they deploy the cash they have in the bank right now. a big problem and no easy solution. >> we'll keep pressuring washington to do the right thing. i hope they'll do the
screening will be so intense. you saw what happened with paul ryan, the head of the house budget committee republican from wisconsinwhen heated. he got hammered for cutting cuts in terms of medicare in the seniors, even those who are involved with tea party. wait a second. not me. go after the government workers, somebody else, but not me. it has to be done in a way that allows the american people to see republicans and democrats in it together. that would give it the republicans moral high ground to say we're the ones being responsible. melissa: i love it. thank yo terrific power panel. >> you're welcome. melissa: next on "money," the death toll in algerian hostage situation reportedly rising to 80 people, questions surfaced about how the algerian government handled the disastrous rescue attempt. release when that coming up. plus, forget what you think you know about pawnshops. there is a new player out there catering to rich people. call it pawning for the 2%. do you ever have to much "money"? apparently not. ♪ officemax can help you drive supply costs down... and down. use your maxper
yesterday when republican budget chairman paul ryan told members they need to be prepared for a debt ceiling increase. the attitudes from republican leaders are a lot different today. senator jon cornyn of texas wrote an op-ed in the houston chronicle in hughes son saying it may be necessary to partially shut down the government in order to secure the long-term fiscal well-being of the country. now cornyn tells the chronicle editorial board we will raise the debt ceiling. we are not going to default on our debt. two years ago, they were gloating over their debt ceiling hostage strategy. >> no president in the near future, maybe in the distant future is going to be able to get the debt ceiling increase without a reignition, reigniting of the same discussion of how do we cut spending and get america headed in the right direction. i expect the next president, whoever that is, will be asking us to raise the debt ceiling again in 2013. we'll be doing it all over. >> today, mitch mcconnell doesn't sound so tough. instead of demanding spending cuts on entitlement reform, here is mccome's new demand
but not rule out legal status for those who enter the country illegally. representative paul ryan has already endorsed rubio's plan. legislators find 39 states are not considering new gun regulations and some may relax their gun laws. having more guns available for self-defense may curb gun violence. >>> the "washington post." clarence thomas broke a 7-year silence during oral arguments. what he was saying was unclear. sources say he was joking about the ivy league and the k transcript only partially showed what he said. he hasn't spoken since 1996. >>> walmart plans to hire any veteran who wants a job and officials project it will lead to 100,000 veterans in five years. >> that's a promise, significant. >> great news. also really quickly again, we want to show while we're doing the papers, the daily news, nra, coming up on the anniversary of newtown, where 20 young children were killed, has put out an app that 4 year-olds can use four years old and up, shoot at targets that are shaped like coffins. >> so get your app. let's go to willie at "politico "politico." >>> chief white house correspo
. let's show it on the screen. representative paul ryan of course the chairman of the house budget committee said this. house republicans may seek a quick, short-term extension of the government's debt limit. now let's go to the other house. let's read, and i'll read for you, what senator john cornyn said. he said, we will raise the debt ceiling. he doesn't say may. he says we will. of course he is in the senate. we're not going to default on our debt. both of these gentlemen are on the right track. i personally think in my emotional state i might not have wanted to increase the debt ceiling but i think politics of course we can't be naive. the president has a very big platform for his strategy. he has the bully pulpit. and i think that some media are calling this a retreat on the debt ceiling. to me the only retreat in the equation is williamsburg, virginia. but i do think that now we can concentrate on what andy brenner and i were talking about yesterday and that is march 1st the sequester. march 27th the continuing resolution because we haven't seen both houses pass a budget and
jay-z and paul ryan. i don't know under what circumstances you would ever have those men in the same frame. but jay-z with beyonce, of course, and paul ryan the republican nominee for vice president. this is a live picture of the president proceeding through the capitol. he's headed to a lunch, the traditional lunch proceeding under the great dome of the capitol. the 150th anniversary of the completion of the dome is this year. a dome built during the civil war. a symbol of the unity of the nation. the president's proceeding in to that lunch now. there was a moment that occurred on the west front, just after all of this was wrapped up, after the national anthem was sung, and the president had something to say. and we wanted to show that to you. >> the president taking one last look at this view. he wanted to stop and linger and see it, record it so that he would never forget his last opportunity to look down the national mall toward the washington monument and the lincoln memorial, to see the crowd who came to hear him deliver his inaugural speech. byron pitts is down in that crowd r
nothing on the table. do we need a new voice maybe? maybe boehner is not the guy. maybe someone like paul ryan to come to the front to be the voice of the gop? >> i think everyone loves the sort of fantasy there will be someone on their side to will so captivate the public that he or she will outshine the president of the united states. it is just not going to happen. the president has an enormous microphone. he has the ability to capture enormous amounts of attention. republicans need to remember on these issues, how much the government spends, and how much it taxes, they have the electorate behind them. the conservatives are united the independents are really fiscally conservative. this is a bloc that controls america and they need to simply find a strategy, i think this is a good one, to have the debate about that spending issue. ashley: talking about spending, what one issue do you think is one that the republicans should really look in on? is it entitlement reform, health care costs? what is it that they should really zero in on? >> well, in the end the numbers are all driven by enti
on social security? articulate his plan that he walked away from. you beat up paul ryan's budget because what it did in trying to address, begin the conversation on social security and medicare. you ripped him a new one on that and yet the president still hasn't put anything on the table. so where is your -- >> most americans oppose it. >> karen -- this is the problem. we get the, oh, you guys have a bad plan. but we don't have that one. >> that's not true. >> you have a bad budget but we don't have one. you want to cut spending but you don't want to raise taxes. we've raised taxes now. where's your spending cuts? >> the president's signed $2.4 trillion of spending cuts already implemented over the -- >> cuts that are already slated to go for previous budget. it's the old washington trick. >> you're going to say the budget control act the president signed last -- >> this is where we are. and we ask ourselves will something get done in the next six, eight months? no. >> this is where we are. >> just made my job easily. i was just listening. >> one more thing to the table the president has
, paul ryan in his vice-presidential speech and in other places pointed out that barack obama gave a speech in janesville, wisconsin gm plant and said we're going to keep this open for a hundred years with the auto bailout and they closed it started making those cars in china. i'd like to also point out that china, by the way, the media fact checkers found that to be a lie, too, they sided with obama on that and romney-ryan was correct on that as well. >> steve: sure. >> i'd like to point out that 55% of gm's increased production in china by 55% since the bailout and make seven out of ten cars outside the united states. so it's a good thing we did this 83 billion dollar auto bailout for american jobs. >> steve: sure, but you know, a big part of the president's face are auto union workers, they hear, hey, they're going to ship a bunch of car manufacturing jobs out to china, oh, wait a minute, i don't like that idea. so you've got a fact checking organization that came in and said that's the lie of the year. why would a fact checking organization say something like that. you would th
